Book two of the Half a Life memoirs.

In this second book of his two-volume memoirs, James Strachey Barnes details the unlikely but true story of his part in the creation of the modern Albanian state, as well as his involvement in the selection of its first native king, King Zog I. He would go on to retell his exciting life as a war reporter embedded with Italian forces during the Second Italo-Ethiopian war, featuring insights from the front lines of some of the most important battles of the conflict.

In addition to detailing a selection of his adventures, Barnes would cast light on his meeting Mussolini, and elaborate on his unapologetic defense of the Italian war effort.

Full of life and enriched by the Barnes' spirited writing, this book is sure to entertain both the history buff and the casual reader. 

Paperback, 5.5x8.5, 254 pages.
